Where the STEM Jobs Are (The New York Times, 2017-11-02)

[EU]
Lehengo astean The New York Times egunkariak informatikako ikasketen perspektiba onak azpimarratu ditu. Where the STEM Jobs Are (and Where They Aren’t) artikuluan argitaratu berri diren lau ikerketa jaso ditu:

  • Glassdoor taldeak aztertu tituludunek beren lehenengo bost urteetan duten batez besteko soldata. Listako lehenengo posizioan dago $70.000rekin  eta bigarren posizioan ingeniaritza elektrikoa.
  • Linkedin-en ikerketa baten arabera, iaz gehien eskatutako 10 profilak informatikakoak ziren, eta gai hauekin lotuta zeuden:  konputazioa hodeian, datu-meatzaritza, analisi estatistikoa, eta telefono adimendunentzako aplikazioak.
  • Edward Lazowska Washingtoneko Unibertsitateko irakasleak (2005 eta 2009 urteetan ACM sari bana jaso zuena) Estatu Batuetako Lan-Bulegoaren enplegu-aurreikuspenak aztertu ditu, eta ondorio moduan esan du 2024ra arteko STEM enplegu-hazkundearen %73 informatikako lanpostuetan izango dela.
  • Berriki egin den ikerketa baten arabera, zientzia, teknologia, ingeniaritza eta matematika (STEM) kontuetan hoberen ordaindutako lanak informatikarienak dira.

El artículo Where the STEM Jobs Are (and Where They Aren’t) publicado en el The New York Times la semana pasada recoge cuatro estudios que subrayan las buenas perspectivas de los estudios en informática:

  • Un ranking de Glassdoor sobre el salario medio por titulación de los trabajadores en sus primeros cinco años de empleo ha mostrado que la informática encabezaba la lista con $70,000, seguido por la ingeniería eléctrica.
  • Según un estudio de LinkedIn, los 10 perfiles más solicitados el año pasado eran de informática, incluyendo experiencia en computación en la nube, minería de datos y análisis estadístico, y creación de aplicaciones para teléfonos inteligentes.
  • El profesor de la Universidad de Washington Edward Lazowska (receptor de premios ACM en 2005 y 2009) analizó las previsiones de empleo de la Oficina de Estadísticas Laborales de Estados Unidos y dedujo que en la década que termina en 2024, el 73% del crecimiento del empleo STEM será en ocupaciones informáticas.
  • Estudios recientes indican que los trabajos mejor remunerados en las áreas de ciencia, tecnología, ingeniería y matemáticas (STEM) son los de informática.

Ondare kulturala klik batean! (I. Etxeberria, Gaur8, 2017-11-11)

 Gaur8 astekariak, Izaskun Etxeberria Uztarroz irakaslearen artikulu bat atera zuen larunbatean: Ondare kulturala klik batean!

Europeana atarian Europako hainbat eta hainbat liburu zahar lortu daitezkeela kontatzen digu Izaskunek. Berak bere tesian euskarazko testu zaharretako testuak euskara modernora ekartzeko tresnak sortu zituen, asko daki gai horri buruz.  Hona hemen artikuluko esaldi batzuk:

[…] Proiektu asko eta asko garatu direnez ondare kulturala digitalizatzeko, askotan zaila da jakitea nondik hasi bilatzen eskuratu nahi dugun hori. Europeana.eu Interneteko atari bat da, eta bertan biltzen dira Europan zehar digitalizatu diren milioika liburu, artelan, bideo, grabaketa, eta abar. 53 milioitik gora sarrera omen daude katalogoan. Ez da kopuru makala! Liburutegi digitalen inguruko informazioa bilatzen hasita, berehala azalduko zaizkigu Europeana, Wikisource, Google Books edota Project Gutenberg bezalako erreferentziak, eta, seguru asko, askoz gehiago ere bai.

[…] Europeana.eu atarian biltzen dira Europan zehar digitalizatu diren milioika liburu, artelan, bideo, grabaketa, eta abar. 53 milioitik gora sarrera omen daude katalogoan. Ez da kopuru makala!

[…] Euskaraz argitaratu zen lehen liburua ere kontsultatu ahal izango dugu Europeanan.  Frantziako Liburutegi Nazionalean ikusiko dugu; bertan klik eginez liburutegi horretako leiho berri bat irekiko zaigu (Gallica.bnf.fr webgunean).

Aukera interesgarria, Europeana. Ez zaizue iruditzen?

Poster in META-forum 2017: Our projects in the frame of the European Capital of Culture in 2016

Next Monday we will present a poster in META-Forum 2017 (Multilingual Europe Technology Alliance). to explain some of the Language Technology projects we developed in the frame of the European Capital of Culture 2016.

Donostia-San Sebastian was the European Capital of Culture in 2016. As new technologies can greatly help the culture, the Faculty of Informatics of the UPV/EHU has been collaborating for almost two years on different projects with Donostia2016 (DSS2016). Our “cultural dock” was called HIRIKIA (“hiri irekia”, open city in Basque language) and covered the following areas among others: web environments, open source, free hardware, multilingualism and social networks. We worked on various projects and initiatives:

  • Ohareleanitzak. Have you visited the Albaola app museum in Pasaia?
    Although the explanations are written in four languages, they can also be read and heard in another 20 languages on the phone by installing the Albaola app. Manex Garaio, a student of the Faculty, designed the OharEleanitzak application for his Degree Project. The code and a guide can be obtained from github.

  • Gida Eleaniztunak DSS2016
    Poesiaren_Ibilbideak_gida_eleanitzak

    Listen and read poetry at the tour stops of the Poetry Path

    It is an outdoor exhibition designed by the San Sebastian artist Esther Ferrer. At 12 points that can be found throughout the city there are QR codes available. if we scan them we will arrive at http://poesiarenibilbidea.dss2016.eu/  to listen and read the poems that the artist has designed for each stop.

  • Behagunea is a tool to follow festivals or events in social networks. This website, in addition to compiling the edited content, classifies each edition, identifying which topic it corresponds to, and indicates whether the opinions are positive, negative or neutral. The developed website can be easily adapted to any new domain, so that any organization or society can use it.Behagunea
  • Donostiapedia Project. Many articles about Donostia and culture have been generated and expanded in several languages to enrich Wikipedia. Basque Wikipedia was our partner. As a first step, in 2015, 100 articles were generated in . In 2016 we launched Donostiapedia.  On 9 July a successful wiki-editathon was organized in Plaza San Telmo. There were representatives of minority languages from all over Europe. Some of them participated in CODEFEST, a technology school for languages with limited resources, the previous week. The objective was to write a book about Donostia, and the book was published in December 2016.
  • Infrastructures to make the city easier to access the internet. We worked in collaboration with several local institutions i2basque, Guifi.net, San Sebastian IT centre and Donostiako sustapena.web_azpiegituraDSS2016
  • Interprest is a technological platform powered by San Sebastián 2016, the European Capital of Culture and developed by the Talaios cooperative. The main goal of the system is to allow low cost and portable interpretation services. easily adaptable to different types of events. It is based on the use of mobile phones, it is therefore a wireless system. The communication process is really simple: the mobile phone of the interpreter through a small microphone sends the audio and the listener receives it on his cell phone.
  • Topagunea: Kalean da Hiztegi-Makina
    Hirikilabs is a collaboration project between Tabakalera and DSS2016. They work within the framework of social and collaborative technologies to create activities that relate the digital world and citizen empowerment, with a hacker, maker and “do-it-yourself” perspective on everything that is done and without forgetting the idea of “digital artisans”. A group of students from the faculty participated in the creation of the “Hitz Machine” and placed it in the new Donostia bus station. The machine offers small dictionaries in several languages.
  • Promote the initiative Iturriak.org, within Wikisource. Through collaborative work, some writting material from our historical heritage have been transcribed.
  •  

    Ondarebideak: It is becoming increasingly common to be able to obtain direct digital access to the bibliographic, museum and in general to all types of archives. Unfortunately, so much information is stored that it is difficult to access it quickly and efficiently.
    In Donostialdea there is a lot of documentation related to culture. To promote it and bring it to life, the Ondarebideak digital platform has been created, where we can follow “digital exhibitions” created by experts as well as create our own exhibitions offering a personal, individualized reading and interpretation. These exhibitions or tours can be organized in different ways: general themes (architecture, music), by epochs (19th century), personalities (Father Donostia, Bilintx…). The IXA research group from the Faculty has been creating these interesting digital itineraries within the Paths project with European support. The results are being successful and now we want to move it to Donostia to help make our heritage, museums, places of interest…. It was put into operation in 2016 between Ixa taldea, Elhuyar and Euskomedia. Up to now, more than 25 routes have been defined.

  • CODEFest Organization of the International Congress on Minority Language Technology Coding For Language Communities 2016 from July 4-8.
  • HorKonpon, a repair shop. HorKonpon is an open workshop whose objective is to fix and reuse the small electric furniture. The aim of this initiative is to make people more autonomous (do it yourself) and to encourage group work (do it together).
  • Euroku. This small game for mobile phones measures the knowledge we have about capital and culture. CodeSyntax has developed it. It uses an automatic question generation engine that feeds on Wikipedia.
